Thank you for your interest in the Bartlesville Police Reserve. This site contains some basic information about Police Reserves in the State of Oklahoma and the City of Bartlesville. Please read the Bartlesville Police Department Disqualifier List (below) prior to completing the Application for Police Reserve. If none of the items on the list pertain to you, you are encouraged to complete and submit an application.

In addition to the requirements contained in the "Oklahoma Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training Fact Sheet" a Bartlesville Police Reserve Officer is required to:
The Bartlesville Police Department and Washington County Sheriffs Office will screen all applications. Applicants who pass this screening will be scheduled for an Oral Review Board with selected members of the reserve unit. Applicants will then be presented to the total reserve membership at a regular meeting where recommendations will be made to select candidates.
Candidates will undergo additional background checks through the OSBI and FBI, and will attend a Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) Reserve Police Academy. At the academy, candidates will receive 160 hours of law enforcement training in Oklahoma law, self defense, firearms, police procedures, and related areas of study. The academy is conducted two (2) nights per week for approximately 16 weeks, plus a few weekends.
Academy graduates will serve a one year probationary period with the reserve unit, during which they will ride patrol with a Field Training Officer (FTO) or a regular officer, work community activities, attend reserve meetings, receive additional training, and assist in Emergency Detention Orders (EDO) transports. Reserve officers who have been in the organization for at least three years become eligible for recommendation to serve on the reserve staff as openings become available.
